? >> you know, they definitely want him, you can see that. in fact, senator feinstein of california, who is head of the senate intelligence committee, wants him, is hoping that he would testify as early as friday. he was scheduled to testify this week. in fact, i believe it was thursday. that's not happening. but, you know, youf got two things. one is they believe that the information that he has, obviously, would be valuable. and, in fact, in some cases they would say crucial. the other thing is there are allegations by some republicans that the timing of his stepping down and all of his scandal is connected to the investigation. now that is surmisal on their part. that's allegations. there certainly is a lot of interest in getting him up there to tell what he knows. >> jill dougherty, reporting live for us this morning. >>> it has been eight months since the president has held a news conference at the white house. as you know, a lot has happened since then. attacks in benghazi, re-election, fiscal cliff we're getting very close to. white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us now.
